    "Dreidel"

    Y'all,

    This is my "Dreidel", a salute to the people of Israel.

    Hi Larry, I enjoyed your "Dreidel", the piece did indeed take a few spins.
    I especially liked the clarinet part, it had a klezmer feel to it. With their long history, and unique social makeup, the people of Israel have a rich and diverse musical heritage. Thanks for sharing your unique spin on this. John

    A nice tribute to a great country and people.

    I think it reflexes their strong spirit.

    Larry,

    Nice piece, with especially fine clarinet work! The stick seems to be a favorite instrument of yours, yes? You have a very natural way of writing for it.

    All the best,

    All the best,
    I was smitten by one of the clarinettists in my high school band. She was my dream chick. Since then I have loved the clarinet.

    Thanks for having a listen, Mr. Ron.

    My Best,

    Yeah, Larry:

    Now you have all the people in Israel dancing and celebrating
    again. Your music is selling on the streets like hotcakes only
    it's "virtual money" this time. Who knows, maybe later........

    A really robust and solid "Dreidel" with genuine Hebrew chord
    progressions. Everyone who hears this piece will immediately
    know that it is directly associated with the character and
    style of Israeli music. Great work producing something of
    original character.

    Loved the clarinet part and especially the "slides" which is so
    characteris, again, of the music of Israel.

    This is one of your finest in my opinion, but all the rest are
    great too.


    BRAVO, Larry

    Mr. Jack,

    I really appreciate such a good review of "Dreidel". Thanks very much.

    Oy! Maybe in another life I was Rabbi Larry Goldberg.
